Here are a couple of excerpts from the story, but I'd suggest clicking through and reading the whole thing. (The committee is due to discuss The Popularity Papers today. ETA: Or yesterday, I should say, as the article was dated 2/6.)
From the Yakima Herald:
A committee of administrators, teachers, parents and a student on Tuesday recommended that a book challenged for its graphic depiction of child abuse remain available to seventh- and eighth-graders at Housel Middle School.
Korb said he was disappointed by the committee’s recommendation and will wait to see what Tolcacher does before deciding his next step. In addition to questioning the committee’s rationale for keeping the book in the libraries, he also questioned why the committee is composed entirely of women.
“If we’re willing to sacrifice the many for the one, that’s a problem,” Korb said, referring to Wheeler’s statement.
